Since the advent of industrial fishing, the abundance of fish has been greatly reduced. Continuing anthropogenic development in our coastal ecosystems, such as tidal energy extraction, may increase stress on these fish stocks.

There is a need to quantify and predict the impacts of anthropogenic development on energy transfer in aquatic ecosystems, which is quantified in our research by using economic and culturally important fish species as indicators of ecosystem function and productivity.
